Artist and project statement, 1 correspondent including a list of photographic material for the exhibition
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 1, 1991 – SATURDAY FEBRUARY 23, 1991In his exhibition at Storefront, Belgian architect, artist and urban theorist Luc Deleu presented a range of projects illustrating his principle of urban development, Scale and Perspective. For Deleu, an understanding of the fundamental principles of scale and perspective were the necessary prerequisites through which the eschewal of axial, symmetrical configurations in architecture—the standard means of achieving monumentality since antiquity—was possible. Deleu’s work explored the use of standing and lying volumes, inspired by the positions of a sleeping and waking man; he believed this concept offered a ‘more playful and dynamic monumentality that invites the visitor to explore the entire building from ever changing angles.’
